Firstgear Rush Mesh Jacket 4.4 5 51 51
Nice Jacket at a good price. I think this was just what I was looking for in a lightweight summer jacket with decent protection. The style is nice and the fit worked for me. I am 6'4" 180# and the large tall fit just right. I am always worried the arm length will be too short for my long reach, but not a problem with this jacket. Definitely a good value at this price. I would recommend it to others. April 7, 2014
Great for Casual Summer Rides Nice jacket, very breathable mesh for those hot days. Good liner too that helps bring it into those fall and spring days. I liked the pockets and zippers (they all work well i.e. don't get stuck or feel cheap) and the reflective strips. Not super protective but the shoulder armor and back pad make you feel like you are making an effort to be safe. Fits well according to the sizing guide too. March 28, 2014
drop my bike today Went down on some road senders today. I was wearing my jacket and the sender scratch my elbow. I don't think this jacket protects you a hundred percent. March 17, 2014
My first This will be my first motorcycle jacket. So my review comes with very little comparison to other jackets or styles. I needed a Hi-Viz, summer riding jacket. I appreciate the quality and fit of the jacket. One thing I noticed is that when I am not on my bike, the gear seems awkward. But once riding, it all fits in to place. I would expect to pay more for this, but thankfully it is reasonable. RevZilla is my favorite site so far. January 27, 2014
Excellent Value Good fitting jacket. The pads move around some, but get back into place with little effort. Airflow with liner out is very good. With liner, it makes a good three season jacket. September 17, 2013
A fine 3-season jacket. The Firstgear Rush is a solid three-season jacket. The windbreaker liner cuts down on wind and even light rain coming through, making the Rush excellent for Spring and early Fall weather. Airflow is excellent without the liner, which allows the Rush to also be an excellent Summer jacket. Things may get a bit warm if sitting in traffic, but there's not many jackets that offer decent protection that won't. The duplication of pockets with and without the liner is a nice touch, and the pads seem to stay where they're supposed to be once the jacket is on. The material seems to be wearing well, and the emblems and striping are quite reflective. I'd prefer some reflective striping on the back (in addition to the reflective Firstgear nameplate), but half the time I'm riding with a backpack anyway, so I can't complain too much. I have the silver/black jacket, and the silver is pretty visible, if not as obvious as the hi-viz version. My one complaint is that the sleeves and jacket length are a bit short, leaving my wrists exposed when gripping the bars and some shirts sticking out past the bottom of the jacket. I'm 5'7", 145lbs, and have the small size jacket. Granted, most men of my weight are probably a couple inches shorter, but enough people mention the short sleeve/jacket length for me to know that Firstgear chould've added an inch to the sleeves and made a lot of people happier.

Good choice First, I have to say the shipping was excellent. I recieved this jacket very quickly just using standard shipping. I ordered the yellow/green high viz jacket, and it's definetely high viz. The video was excellent as there were no surprises, exactly as advertised. I rated the protection and durability an average only because not sure how well it will actual perform in a spill. Have a feeling the mesh won't hold up after a good slide but hopefully the pads will do their job. Really bought it for hot temp riding and has been excellent during 90 degree days. Very cool when in lower 70-60's without liner. July 29, 2013
FIRST MOTORCYCLE JACKET This is our first purchase for motorcycle jackets and after searching several options to fit our budget, we decided to buy the "Firstgear Rush Mesh Jacket" for me and the "Firstgear Women's Contour Mesh Jacket" for my wife. We bought the "M" size for me and for her an "S" size, this is a true size brand, but you must have in mind that my height is 1,72 mts and my weight is 75 Kgs. My wife height is 1,60 mts and her weight is 53 kgs. I usually drive my motorcycle in temperatures between 8°C and 20°C, also I have driven with it under light rain conditions and it has met all my expectations keeping me dry and warm. Hope this is usefull. July 25, 2013

I am hoping the same for my summer jacket, the Rush Mesh.
Mar 28, 2014
Luciano C: I had the identical jacket which was stolen last summer. It was a great warm weather jacket so I have to replace it. I thought about trying something else but why abandon a jacket that I was very happy with. Mar 25, 2014
James M: looks nice Feb 14, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the silver very visible? I want to be seen on my cruiser and am torn between silver and neon yellow.
Neon obviously would be more visible, but don't want to look like a canary!!

Karl A: I have the Yellow version and would recommend it before all other colors!
Years ago a DUI driver hit me head on and broke my right thumb so badly that the doctor said it would never work again and it should be cut off. My left thumb had already been blown off and I made him set the right thumb and it is fine.
In 2012 I drove south, west north and back east, saw 9000 miles of the USA and the First Gear Mesh saw me through sea level in Florida, below sea level and intense heat in the western deserts, sea level and the cold north and the Pacific in California, then almost 12,000 feet and snow and hail in Montana. At no time did any vehicle try to cut across coming towards me and it was a safe ride.
For the winter my son has the bike and jacket in Austin TX , I get it back in May. He thinks the yellow is the way to go also and is very impressed with the deference vehicles have given him.
Hope this helps---"Ride Safe!

Karl A: My PC stuttered yesterday and hope this in not a repeat.
I have the yellow, (actually has slight green cast).
Toured the USA in 2012, put on 9000 miles, also had a buddy on his bike and he had the yellow model too.
Back in 64, a DUI auto driver hit me head on and broke the one thumb I have. There have been too many times I've had to juke to avoid getting hit so I want visibility! On my riding with the Firstgear Mesh on its been very good and my recommendation is: pick yellow!
Ride safe,

Gloria G: I'm not sure why this was sent to me. I bought hubby the neon version. In the daytime, his black mesh coat(another man.) is not nearly as visible as the neon color. At night, the reflective strip is quite visible. As a wife that cares about his cool factor and his safety, I worried. To be honest, a lot of riders are wearing neon, even if it means buying a neon vest and putting over the jacket. Why do double duty? I know about his visibility because I also ride so I have checked his visibility. Hope that helps. Mar 23, 2014

Walter D: I have the hi-viz yellow in this jacket and I think it's great. Living in SoCal, it can get pretty warm and the Rush Mesh let's the air flow really well. I am a firm believer in hi-viz colors and both my riding jackets are yellow. Better to be a canary that's seen than a crow that gets crushed!

Steven T: Yeah, it's visible, but not like neon would be. I even asked my wife who's followed me in the car before and she said she had no problem seeing me. Past that, hard to answer your question. Sure, more than black, less than neon.

Let's great air through too.

A shopper asked: Why does this jacket under the cold weather tag? Will it stand up to cold weather? Jul 3, 2012

rayjay03: This is a mesh jacket. The only insulation/wind protection you have is the zip in/out lining. With that said the lining is of good quality and I have ridden in temps in the upper 40s for a hour or so. At the end of the ride I was chilly. This is a fine coat down to the low mid 50s for a short time and really shines as the temps rise. May 27, 2013

TheSneach: Rode to work with the liner this morning running 55mph on country roads. Windy day with an ambient temperature of 50 degrees. The jacket was comfortable, and kept me warm. Since it is a mesh jacket I am not sure I would try it in much colder weather, but it held up well. Oct 29, 2012

A shopper asked: What's the best back protection for the First Gear Rush Mesh Jacket? Is there a pocket to add protection i.e. SAS-TEC? Jun 26, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: Though FirstGear doesn't have a specific back protector option that they recommend, there is a pocket to insert one and you can cut the Sas-Tec to fit. The pocket is relatively small compared to other jackets and is shaped like long rectangle from top to bottom. Jul 29, 2011

MJNygs: It already has an integrated back-pad, but no pocket for additional protection. Oct 1, 2011
